A TV Bregman iterative model of Retinex theory

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • A feature of the human visual system (HVS) is color constancy, namely, the ability to determine the color under varying illumination conditions. Retinex theory, formulated by Edwin H. Land, aimed to simulate and explain how the HVS perceives color. In this paper, we establish a total variation (TV) and nonlocal TV regularized model of Retinex theory that can be solved by a fast computational approach based on Bregman iteration. We demonstrate the performance of our method by numerical results.
